Spending Too Much Time Dictating?

Streamline Your Record Review Process

Reviewing voluminous and disorganized medical records for an IME or other medico-legal matter can be a tedious and time-consuming prospect.  IMT works as an extension of your expert witness practice, reducing the time and resources that you must expend on summarizing records for a case or claim and allowing you to focus more on the things that truly require attention and expertise:  Your opinions and conclusions.

Whether you need just a brief chronological listing of the records reviewed or a comprehensive, detailed summary of their contents, IMT understands the claims and litigation processes and that medical records are a key piece of the puzzle.  Outsourcing this monotonous aspect of your expert witness work provides you with relevant and accurate summaries while you are better able to focus on the root of the issue rather than spending hours dictating on a litany of unrelated conditions.

How Does It Work?

Upon receiving a set of scanned medical records from you (in PDF or other electronic format, via a variety of HIPAA-compliant file transfer methods), IMT will prepare a template based on the report type and any cover letter(s), and then one of our trained and experienced reviewers will identify pertinent facts and transcribe a summary of those records based on your preferred format and specifications.

  • Relevant information from each medical record may include date of service, type of service, provider, and location, as well as key details from each visit, including patient or claimant history, prognosis and treatment data, procedures performed, hospital admissions, diagnostic testing results, injuries sustained, pain complaints, assessments, and diagnoses, in addition to details from any legal or insurance records included in the file.
  • If desired, records can be sorted chronologically, and a helpful table of contents can be added.  We at IMT pride ourselves on our skill in creating reports that are easy to read and quick to navigate.
  • Upon receiving the completed record review summary (as well as to comply with the laws of your state and/or any attestations in your report), you will likely wish to review the records personally, adding any additional pertinent details as you see fit and dictating any necessary history, background, examination, conclusions, and opinions required to complete your expert witness or independent medical examination report.

    I have been a physician expert for 15 years. I have used IMT for a large part of that time and have worked with Gerri... Newman throughout. I have also used multiple other transcription services over those years and none come even close to IMT's quality of work, their incredible attention to detail, the cleanness of their report product and great customer service interface.IMT is truly the "Intel Inside" of my forensic business. My business runs more smoothly and I provide far higher quality products having them under the covers of my operation. They do exceptionally well for rush requests, special requests and really anything I need when it comes to creating quality report products. I cannot say enough about my experience with them.
